The Smokehouse benefiting NFFF is coming to Dover International Speedway on Sunday, Oct. 1.

The 10th annual event, which supports the NFFF, will take place in the Monster Mile’s hospitality village prior to the Monster Energy NASCAR Cup Series race on Oct. 1.

NFFF events in previous years were open exclusively to firefighters and their families. This year, all fans can enjoy the experience, which includes a ticket to the Oct. 1 Monster Energy NASCAR Cup Series race, driver Q&A sessions, food, beverages and more.

The ticket price includes a Monster Energy NASCAR Cup Series ticket, a Trackside Access pass, an all-you-can-eat buffet with Pepsi and Anheuser-Busch products, as well as driver Q&A sessions that morning.

Firefighter organizations can also vie for the Firehouse Challenge Trophy, by bringing the most guests to the event. Past Firehouse Challenge winners include:

  • 2016: Cumberland County Volunteer Firefighters Association (Carlisle, Pa.)
  • 2014-15: Citizens Fire Company (Branchdale, Pa.)
  • 2013: Cumberland County Volunteer Firefighter’s Association (Carlisle, Pa.)
  • 2011-12: Cressona (Pa.) Fire Company

Every day, more than 1 million firefighters around the country respond to calls to keep citizens safe.  Each ticket package purchased includes a contribution to the National Fallen Firefighters Foundation’s mission of honoring America’s fallen fire heroes and providing resources to assist their survivors in rebuilding their lives.

The NFFF also built and maintains the national memorial in Emmittsburg, Maryland, the first permanent national park honoring all firefighters that have died in the line of duty.
